Share Your World 2015 – Week 7

This is week 7 of Cee’s Share Your World. Here are her questions (and my answers) for this week.

Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

It is rare that I carry paper money and there is never any order to it. The bills face every which way and occur in whatever order I shove them into my wallet. Since each bill is a different colour, it’s easy enough to find what I am looking for. Got to love that Canadian “Monopoly money”.

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

My favourite dog was Snoopy when I was little. I had a stuffed Snoopy in a raincoat that I loved. I also had a giant red bloodhound that I love. I can’t remember where he came from. He wasn’t Clifford. He came with a Christmas elf hat. I named him Poinsetter because he was red like a poinsettia.. In terms of real dogs, I love Bernese Mountain dogs. Their markings are gorgeous. I hear they are friendly and intelligent too.

If money was not an issue, would you go on a cruise?  If so where would you go?

I would try it. I’ve never been on a ship before, so I’m not sure how I’d fare. I get motion sickness of cars and buses, but not  speed boats, trains and planes. Who knows what could happen on a ship. I would like to do a Caribbean cruise. One that hit a bunch of the smaller islands.

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

No. You’d have to offer me a lot of money. I love my sleep. It’s really hard for me to get a good night’s sleep. There would have to be a pretty big reward for me to purposely put myself in a situation where I know there’s no chance of good sleep.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last Week: I am grateful that my second bout of stomach flu was short lived!

This Week: I am looking forward to finding some time to catch up on art journaling. I thought I was going to have some time last week, but it never happened.

Share Your World 2014 – Week 25

share your world

This is the Share Your World Challenge. If you missed the last couple of weeks, more information can be found at Cee’s Photography. Essentially, four questions are asked every week and you have to answer them. Simple and fun!

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal, drawing, cartoon or character in a movie or TV show)

Today, my favourite type of dog is a Bernese Mountain Dog. They are beautiful dogs and they look perfect for hugging! I have never had a pet dog before, but I always loved them growing up. I collected Puppy in My Pocket. They were small dog figurines. Does anyone remember these? They were huge for kids in the 90s. My favourite was a Border Collie named Jemma. My sister and I would spend hours playing with them. We must have had at least 100 between the two of us.  I can still remember all their names and breeds. Ridiculous the things your brain remembers huh? lol. I couldn’t bare to give up my collection, so I still have them all in my parents’ attic.

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I am a huge geek! Most people think it’s just my husband because of his Batman obsession and action figure collections, but I am a geek too. Maybe a bit of a closet geek. It doesn’t get a chance to come across in my everyday life. I love Star Wars. My cat’s name, Ewok, was my idea, not hubby’s. I like Star Trek too. Is it a sin to like both? I watch/read sci-fi and fantasy. I appreciate all things Disney and Lego. I cherish old school cartoons and toys and have a huge collection of character t-shirts that I never get to wear.

Have you ever gone scuba diving?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

I have never gone scuba diving. The thought of it used to scare me, but no so much anymore. I went snorkeling for the first time last summer and absolutely loved it. I think I’d be open to trying scuba if the opportunity presented itself. I wouldn’t want to go extremely deep or into underwater caves. Those ideas still scare me. I think I’ve watched too many horror movies or something, lol.

What was the most important event in your life last week? (anything goes it can be a good nights sleep, finished a reading book, winning the lottery, or getting married)

Most important? Hmm, it depends how you define “important”. It has been a tough week, so I’m going to go with a definition of most impact. My husband’s friend from his time in Africa died. It was deemed a suicide. We found out about it through Facebook. I had never met the man, but I felt like I knew him through my husband’s stories. I also enjoyed the emails he wrote us, although those had been less frequent this past year. It was a real shock and I have all sorts of mixed feelings and unanswered questions.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last Week: I am grateful for having my health and another birthday. The events of the past week have reinforced this soooo much.

This Week: Our one year wedding anniversary is this week. I’m looking forward to doing something to celebrate. I have no ideas yet, but I’m sure we’ll come up with something. 🙂
